The Bay of Plenty is a bioregion with unique gifts and challenges. By spreading the powerful design process of permaculture and by sharing practical know-how with the people who live here, we hope to add to the resilience and permanent abundance of this beautiful place.
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture was developed in the 1970s by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. It is one specific approach to sustainability. It starts with observation, moves through thoughtful planning to intentful action, all along maintaining the careful use of resources and a respectful approach to life. Permaculture allows us to design resilient environments of any scale – in our own apartments, backyards, farms, businesses and communities.
What We Do
Plenty Permaculture offers the internationally recognised permaculture curriculum over 12 Saturday workshops that teach the foundations of permaculture as well as practical hands-on skills.
